A TEAM of people will be hoping to complete six peaks across the country in just 48 hours this month to raise money for children who have had an amputation and their families.

Embsay quad amputee Luke Mortimer's Six Peak Challenge will see 16 people including his dad, Adam, take on both the Yorkshire Three Peaks and the National Three Peaks in just over just three days from Friday, June 28.

"We will be climbing Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike, then Penyghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, before heading down to Snowdon to finish off the National Three Peaks all within 48 hours," said Adam, who added hopefully Luke would meet the walkers at the summit of Penyghent.

There will also be a fundraising golf day at Skipton Golf Club on Thursday, June 27; teams of four are invited to take part in the event, which will include breakfast, and a two course meal for £200. Email:ajm610a@gmail.com.

Nine year old Luke, who was born a fit and healthy boy, contracted Meningococcal Meningitis Septicaemia in December 2019, after spending six months in hospital he left as a quad amputee.

The events will raise money to fund an Amp Camp Kids holiday in Tenerife, where families with a child who has had an amputation get to spend an all inclusive week together. Any leftover funds will go towards Luke's ongoing needs.
